How to restructure Nigeria: Why, what, how and when

Nation-building is hard, but it need not be as difficult as we make it in Nigeria. Nation-building is also intentional. It doesn’t happen by accident.

The dangers of negative narratives

As a professional journalist and a regular columnist, one of the things I fear the most on the job is boxing myself into a corner.
